The Executive Office of Transportation (EOT) this week holds three Community Planning Workshops to seek public ideas and input on the proposed ‘28X’ bus enhancement project.  EOT is proposing to use federal economic stimulus funding to dramatically transform the existing MBTA Route 28 into the 28X, providing more comfortable and more efficient service from Mattapan Square to Ruggles Station.

The 28X would operate via Blue Hill Avenue and Warren Street and serve Dudley Station, a hub of MBTA bus service. The new service will include dedicated bus lanes, new stations with amenities such as heaters and CharlieCard machines, 60-foot clean-running buses, and traffic features designed to speed up service and dramatically improve reliability.

The Community Planning Workshops times and locations are as follows:

June 8, 2009 – 6:00pm – 8pm
Dudley Branch Library
65 Warren Street, Roxbury

June 9, 2009 – 6:00pm – 8pm
Mattapan Branch Library
1350 Blue Hill Avenue, Mattapan

June 10, 2009 – 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Grove Hall Community Center
51 Geneva Avenue, Roxbury
